I have set the default listing of forum posts and comments to use the Plain style.

Please take a look and let me know if there is anything else I can change on the forum posts to make it look *better*.

I'm realy glad you made that change! No more silly branching-post-doubles...

The new-post icons still stay orange if you checked the remember me option while logging in, even after coming back to the site days later.

Only logging out and in resets all the icons to white...

Cheese!

The colours and quote shading look good to me.

The site doesn't seem perfectly suited to 1024x768. The fonts are very wee. The forum windows are also about an inch narrower than I'm used and they seem cramped. (The extra column on the left eats away at the available screen space.)

I imagine the site is near-impossible to use at 800x600, but I'm not sure if that's a consideration any more.

If it's possible to hide the Score:0 on every message, that'd be worth doing.

Thanks!

Ok I moved around some of the modules so the forums will no longer contain a right bar area. Which gives more room to the forum posts etc.

I moved items like online users, last changes, search, etc to the left area so users can still navigate around, see who is on, etc. Obviously I did not keep the last forums posts, because you are in the forums so you would not need to look at lasts posts while browsing the forums.

Give the forums area a look and let me know how it *feels*. Also if you see other areas of the site that could benefit from a similar change let me know.

I think the pages where people can (will) put up pictures will probably benefit from having no right colum. (nobody like to scroll...)

Then again, if it's only the right colum that gets pushed over the side, it wouldn't matter much...

Cheese!

Fixed jumping to *correct* forum post when selecting item in last forums posts area.

Please take a look and let me know if you have issues.
